Shooting is an important part of basketball.  First how to shoot you put one hand under the ball and your other hand on the side.  The hand under the ball will push the ball towards the hoop to try and make a basket.  The hand on the side will just keep the ball in position to shoot the ball.  Your team will try to make as many points as you can and you get points by making baskets and whichever team has the most points when the game is over wins.  Shooting is a hard thing to master but if you practice you can get good at it.

But try not to foul when you are playing defense because if you get five fouls you can not play the rest of the game. Defense is a key part of basketball.
